- Modern two-storey building with upper units facing onto the car park and ground floor units accessed from Stirling Street.
- Bigger and improved car park accessed from Davies Row
- New Denny Library with flexible and vibrant community space and services
- New Town Square with flexible seating, performance space and public art.
- Public WiFi and dedicated town centre website www.dennydiscovered.co.uk
- Public art
- War memorial relocation to Broompark
During your next visit check out the following community-led public art pieces:
- Sculptural Treasure Trail – a sculpture 'treasure' trail which highlights and tells the story of Denny
- Railings – the creation of bespoke artistic railings that reflect the local heritage and people of the area
- The Lazy Corner – this area was historically a social point where locals gathered at the corner for a chat.
- The Staircase – located at the north end of the site, the artist will work directly with the elevation of the stairs to host artistic elements that reflect local heritage aspects
The Council agreed to sell land to Magnus Beresford ltd (subject to planning approval) for the development of a 500sqft Co-op retail unit. Part of the phase 2 site will be retained by the Council for future development opportunities.
The site was sold to Mark Love for the development of a Post Office and Convenience store to replace the existing facility which he manages on the opposite side of Duke Street.
